It would be “too dangerous,” according to James Heappey, the minister in charge of the armed forces, for British troops to rescue British citizens who are stranded in Sudan due to the conflict.
Heappey said the following on LBC’s Tonight with Andrew Marr on Monday: I believe that the evacuation from Kabul will be very much in people’s minds. We haven’t seen anything like that since then. However, Kabul was quite different.
Heappey responded, “Yes, it is too dangerous to try to use British forces to evacuate people from Sudan.” Yes. Other than our tightly controlled mission to extract the diplomats on Saturday and Sunday, which we had complete control over, there is a risk.
“Past that, we would actually be embedding unfamiliar soldiers, not simply us, there’ll be different nations that would believe that should make it happen, into the pieces of Khartoum that has been the most fiercely battled about,” he proceeded.
